There have been many questions surrounding the future of the Chautauqua Auditorium in Shelbyville. The building is currently in a state of disrepair, and a group in Shelbyville is working to raise the funds to fix the building. That group now has a new leader, as Brenda Freeman has recently stepped in as the new Fund Raising Chairman for the group.
Freeman works to raise funds to repair the building, as well as working to set up events to take place there. She says although she's not originally from Shelbyville, she fell in love with the area and the building.
Freeman found out that the building was in a state of disrepair and needed help. She started volunteering, and eventually found herself taking over for Brenda Elder in her role in the Chautauqua Project.
Freeman appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
